ACTON, MA: Albert (Bert) W. Lowe, of Acton, MA passed away peacefully on May 1,2020 under the wonderful care of the staff at Emerson Hospital Concord, MA. He is survived by his wife of almost 50 years, Gunvor (Berggren) Lowe of Acton, and his son Philip Lowe of Lakewood, CO.

Bert was born January 19, 1938 in Cincinnati, OH to Gladys M. and Philip R. Lowe. He spent his early years in Charlotte NC, and then moved with his family to Reading MA, where he attended and graduated high school. As a young man was active in Boy Scouts, was an amateur rock hound, enjoyed cars, and was a voracious reader of science fiction.

Bert received his Bachelors in Physics from Bowdoin College, and later a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University. He had a diverse career as an engineer working on many different projects and in different fields, but Bert’s professional and private passion was Neural Networks, as an early proponent of this method of machine learning; he was delighted in his later years to see its advancement, especially in the area of Deep Learning.

Bert was lucky in life as he found the love of his life in a young Swedish nurse named Gunvor Berggren that emigrated to the U.S. from Finland. Together they had a son who he took great pride in passing down his knowledge to, and sharing his love of Scouting, the outdoors, skiing and reading. He enjoyed volunteering his time to the Acton Boxborough Friends of Music and Acton Troop 11 while his son was in growing up. Later he joined his wife Gunvor in supporting SWEA Boston and the Scandinavian Cultural Center. He will be missed by those that knew him.

A Memorial will be held at a future date, when it is considered safe for friends and family to congregate.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to: The Scandinavian Charitable Society, 206 Waltham Street West Newton, MA 02465 https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/ScandinavianCharitableSociety/OnlineGiving.html
